|Massey Fossil Fuel CEO Indicted|
They are a pathogenic viral infection of industrial civilization.
They get by with it by infiltrating the blood-stream of host victims and fooling the immune system of civilization.
They are like most pathogens in certain respects, yet on the edges they are not too big to jail, so some of civilization's antigens within its immune system are still active, and will strike at the smaller, less-well-connected pathogens:
(UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF WEST VIRGINIA CHARLESTON GRAND JURY 2014 NOVEMBER 12, 2014 SESSION, PDF). When this series began, the characteristics and the deceitful ways of these social pathogens were pointed out:Count One

Just like those running asbestos, lead paint, and tobacco companies who knowingly continued to do harm for profit ... energy executives ... are the business equivalents of terrorists.(Oil-Qaeda: The Indictment). The pathogen being prosecuted is not the most virulent of the strain, but one has to begin somewhere.
In fact, for years they’ve funded a massive campaign to deny the reality
of climate change ... we should think of them as oil-Qaeda
Toxic bridge to everywhere
More than 100 million people will die ... by 2030 if the world fails to tackle climate change, a report commissioned by 20 governments said on Wednesday.
It calculated that five million deaths occur each year from air pollution, hunger and disease as a result of climate change and carbon-intensive economies, and that toll would likely rise to six million a year by 2030 if current patterns of fossil fuel use continue.
"A combined climate-carbon crisis is estimated to claim 100 million lives between now and the end of the next decade," the report said.
These same charges can be brought against those conspiring to cover up and hide the truth of global warming induced climate change and other fossil fuel pollution that is murdering millions annually.
However, those prosecutions will be much more difficult because of the psychopathology and virulence of those pathogens:
Other untaxed corporations funded by Oil-Qaeda appear to be non-political --as they divide the country with hostile anti-Americanism (ALEC Lies To Cover Up Lies).(A Decline Of The American Republic - 4). At his time, it does not look good for civilization because the infection has metastasised throughout the system.
Even The Supreme Politicians come out of the closet without fear of oversight or reprisals (Supreme Court neoCons Are Robed Politicians).
As disaster approaches (IPCC Latest Report) a suicidal cry rings out from the dark halls of congress for more of the same (Congress On Keystone XL Pipeline).
